Wale Responds To Diddy Hanging Him Over Balcony Claims
Wale is responding to the accusation that Diddy hung him over a balcony after working with Cassie in the studio.
Shy Glizzy’s bodyguard, Ant Glizzy, claimed that the Bad Boy Records founder dangled Wale from a balcony after learning that he was working with Cassie then.
Ant Glizzy says he saw the alleged altercation between Wale and Diddy. However, he claims he heard noises from behind a curtain where Diddy, Diddy’s security, and Wale were.
“I swear to God, [there’s] a balcony in the studio,” he explained per HotNewHipHop. “They got Wale over top his face, hanging out the balcony. I can’t really hear with they saying. We knew it was him because we knew what kind of shoes he wore to the studio.”
Wale Responds To The Alleged Balcony Situation
However, now Wale is speaking up about the claims. “It’s a shame that a complete fabrication has gotten this far and that we have to dignify it with a response,” Wale’s management told TMZ.
“It is a fantasy written by an outsider to exploit a viral story for clicks … the author must have watched ‘The Five Heartbeats’ on basic cable and got inspired,” they continued, referencing the balcony scene. “They have never been in the same room as the people mentioned. Wale has never met Cassie or the author and was never involved in any type of altercation. He wishes peace for everyone involved in the settlement.”
Diddy has not responded to the accusations.
Cassie & Diddy ‘Amicably’ Settle Sexual Assault Lawsuit
On Friday (Nov. 17), it was announced that Cassie and Diddy had settled the sexual abuse lawsuit. In a statement per TMZ, Ventura stated: “I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control. I want to thank my family, fans, and lawyers for their unwavering support.”
Diddy stated: “We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.”
The details behind their settlement have not been disclosed.
Diddy’s lawyer, Ben Brafman, also released a statement that the rapper deciding to settle is not an admission of guilt.
“Just so we’re clear, a decision to settle a lawsuit, especially in 2023, is in no way an admission of wrongdoing,” Brafman said. “Combs’ decision to settle the lawsuit does not in any way undermine his flat-out denial of the claims. He is happy they got to a mutual settlement and wishes Ms. Ventura the best.”
